Cloth dresses came to the Plains Indian women with the westward movement of the fur trade. Lightweight calicos were very popular for everyday use, red and blue trade cloth (broadcloth) was used for "best dress," and today this dress with ribbons on it is commonly seen at rendezvous and pow-wows.
Using this pattern you can create the calico Plains Indian Cloth Dress, the now classic "ribbon Dress" and the Traditional Trade Cloth Dress. There is a choice of three neckline styles and two sleeve variations. Also shown are complete directions for lining the dress.
A glossary of terms is included ot insure that even the novice can create a fine dress with this pattern and intermediate sizes are easily made.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
